Soybeans advanced 414 cents and corn 2 cents. Oats gained 1 cent but wheat futures fell nearly 3 cents. Soybean meal advanced $1 « ton and oil gained 10 points. Iced broilers were unchanged in dull trade. Several brokers acting for •export interest bought soybeans In quantities of over 500,000 bushels. The trade speculated that a sale of soybeans to some foreign country would soon be announced. Buying in the nearby September option, however, reflected the lack of in- tensions to deliver soybeans before it expires. Soybean meal .prices at the cash level reportedly improved and this Influenced futures buying. Oil trade was light and mixed. Corn also was bought by export interest, but there was only a nominal amount of hedging. Oats also had good commercial support and as prices rose in corn and oats short covering was evident. Selling in the wheat pit followed a mixed opening. Much of it was profit-taking after a rise of some 8 cents the last two sessions.

Curtis, head of the Alton area offices. According to Curtis, the purpose of the school is to train anyone interested in learning ' to do income tax work with the possibility of employment in any of the more than 6,000 H & R Block offices. There are two offices in Alton, one In Wood River and another in Bethalto, besides others in nearby towns and cities. Curtis pointed out that the ever-increasing detail work involved in preparing tax returns makes it imperative that a tax man know his job. "A graduate of our school will be qualified for immediate employment, whether he works for us or not," he stated. Classes will be conducted here at 202 E. Broadway, in the H & R Block office. All text books, supplies and necessary tax forms will be provided by II & R Block without cost to each student who pays the small tuition fee charged for the course. The course will consist of 27 three- hour sessions, beginning Sept. 11, with the choice of morning, afternoon or evening classes. Registration for the H & R Block income tax course is at the Block office at 305 N. Main in Edwardsville now and up to the starting date of the classes. Graduates of the tax school will recejvfi certificates attesting to their qualifications. Curtis said, "It should be understood that enrollment in this school is not a guarantee of employment by 11 & R Block. However, one basic function of the school is to provide a reservoir of qualified personnel for the greatly expanding number of II & R Block offices and ever growing volume of tax returns prepared by them." He explained that job opportunities, either full or part- time during the tax filing period, interested many housewives, retired persons, students and others with spare time. "Any individual having the ability to work with figures and to meet the public is competent to complete the course," Curtis said.

California group is first in move to clean up judiciary By LEIF ERICKSON SAN FRANCISCO (AP) A California commission which recommended *.he firing of a Los Angeles Judge this week is the nation's pioneering agency in policing judicial competency and conduct. The California Commission on Judicial Qualifications was created by a constitutional amendment approved by a 3-1 margin in the 1960 general election. Part of the California plan conceived by reti r el California Chief Justice Phil S. Gibson to assure confidence in judicial integrity, it has become a model adopted by 25 states. The nine-member commission recommended Tuesday that the California Supreme Court remove Los Angeles Municipal Court Judge Leland W. Geiler from office. It was only the second time in the commission's 12-year history that it has made a removal recommendation, which must be ratified by the State Supreme Court after briefing and hearing. The first was rejected by the Supreme Court eight years ago and that judge still is serving on the bench. But the mere fact that the commission exists and functions achieves substantial effect, Justice Murray Draper of the State Court of Appeals here believes. Draper, the commission's chairman, reported in a legislative hearing that seven judges had resigned or retired in the course of investigations during a two-year period. The latest commission report accused Geiler of prejudice and bias against the public defender's office. It charged that, in one case, the judge jabbed an electric pro! into a public defender's buttocks to discourage the defender's efforts for his client. Geiler also was accused by ~ -j the commission of relieving CogStUeft LIVINGSTON - Mrs. Anna Sohovlch, 93, of Livingston, died at 9:20 a.m. Wednesday at St. Francis Hospital in Litchfield.

Draper said the bulk of complaints against judges have no merit, but when complaints develop sub-, stantial evidence of physic *1 or mental incapacity, senility or misconduct, the commission investigates. The first look is made by Jack E. Frankel, the commission's executive secretary since its inception. If he finds the complaint has substance, the commission requests investigators from the attorney general's staff.
